Since Lil Uzi Vert announced he's quitting music back in January, many of us have been wondering if he will truly never release music again. XXL have documented Uzi's record label struggles, which seem to be the root of most of his music industry woes. Since then, fans have been targeting Generation Now label boss DJ Drama, who recently shared that the rapper has his permission to drop Eternal Atake, his promised sophomore studio album.

On March 25, Uzi then responded to DJ Drama on his Instagram Stories. “If you want your album 2 drop Number One Rule don’t hang with the boss girlfriend,” he wrote in his first Instagram Story post, with the next post reading, “Let the guilty answer all the blogs. FREE UZI.”

He then went on to say that he was in the studio, tagging Roc Nation, which might suggest the record label was to thank for the session. According to NAV, Lil Uzi Vert missed out on appearing on the Canadian musician's Bad Habits album last week due to label drama. “DJ Drama and Don Cannon won’t clear his verse legally,” Nav wrote on Instagram. “I used to be a big fan of them since Gangsta Grillz mixtapes and thought they support new artists. I guess it’s all about the $$$$ for them now!”

The above response from Lil Uzi Vert was in reference to DJ Drama's preceding comments about the delayed release of Uzi's Eternal Atake album. As XXL previously pointed out, After DJ Akadmiks posted a photo of Lil Uzi Vert on Instagram with the caption, "@ someone you’d sacrifice To get the new Uzi album ?," DJ Drama commented "uzi should put out EA [Eternal Atake] tomorrow or any day he wants. He has me & [co-CEO Don] Cannon's total support and blessings to drop it!" Check out the posts below.

Lil Uzi Vert first announced his Eternal Atake album, the follow up to 2017's Luv is Rage 2,  in July 2018. In December, he shared that the album was finished. After announcing his retirement from music, he shared his frustrations about his situation in February 2019. "I really just want [the label] to respect me," he said. "They just gotta respect me, 'cause I respect them. That's the reason why I really went over there. Like normal shit. It's just a different level in life. Everybody go through the same shit." Earlier in March, the Philadelphia rapper shared a snippet of an unreleased song.
